Supply of sodium borohydride in China appears superfluous at present Summary: The supply of sodium borohydride in China is superfluous at present, and most of the product is consumed by domestic pharmaceuticals industry. Currently, both the import volume and export volume of sodium borohydride in China are still small. Tags: sodium borohydride, pharmaceuticals, application field, supply, consumption, import and export, self-sufficient In China, sodium borohydride is widely used in various industries, including pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, intermediates, fine chemicals, electronic products, paper making, water treatment and perfume. Among them, pharmaceuticals industry is the largest application field, taking up 73% of consumption volume of sodium borohydride in 2013, which is different from overseas markets where paper making is the dominant field.

- Production situation of sodium borohydride (mainly during 2009-2013), including capacity, output,

and

competition

among

producers

- Consumption situation of sodium borohydride during 2010-2013 and introduction to major end-use

segments

- Forecast on production and consumption of sodium borohydride during 2014-2018 The supply of sodium borohydride in China is superfluous at present, with just a 42.0% operating rate in 2013. Despite a steady increase in the past few years, the consumption volume of sodium borohydride in China is still small. As a result, there were no new entrants in

the

industry

during

2010-2013.

Compared with 2003-2009, the production situation of sodium borohydride in 2010-2013 showed some differences. During 2010-2013, the capacity kept relatively stable at about 6,000 t/a with a CAGR of about 0.3%, while the corresponding growth rate in 2003-2009 was as high as 39.2%. In terms of output, it posted a CAGR of 25.9% in 2003-2009, which became

merely

about

8.8%

in

the

past

four

years.

Currently, China is basically self-sufficient in sodium borohydride. Compared with its domestic output, the import volume is small. Many end-users in China claimed that they use homemade sodium borohydride, which is able to meet their demand both in quality and price. Besides, China exports a small quantity of the product to overseas markets. The report is the 2rd edition of CCM’s series surveys covering China’s sodium borohydride industry.
